Stop Tuning Yourself Out!

Life is a conversation with yourself. The most dangerous thing you can possibly do is ignore or silence your inner voice. Most of our so-called villains are simply people who do not hear what they are saying to themselves.

Weíve learned to drown ourselves out by numbing our emotions, forming addictions, and seeking gurus with cookie cutter, magical solutions.

Taking care of oneself doesn't have to be looked upon as selfishness. All are in need of private space, to wind down and reevaluate the day, before recharging and moving forward.
